Cannot Delete Folder, 550 Error Message
Posted 24 June 2006 - 10:27 AM
550 Could not change perms on 'folder name': Permission denied
Changing the CHMOD worked for me previously to delete folders, but now this one is just stuck there with a big ugly red X and I'm not sure what else to do. I've even trying deleting the folders from my cpanel itself and that doesn't work either. I'm really in a bind, please help!

Otherwise, please post the log of a try to delete this folder.

It says the folder isn't empty, but I'm pretty sure that it is. Although when I try to click on the folder to check if it's empty I get this:

1) Connect to the site and navigate to the parent folder of the folder you want to delete.
2) Press Shift+F5 to display the Command Line toolbar.
3) At the Command Line prompt, enter
SITE CHMOD 777 <folder>where you replace "<folder>" with the folder's name that you want to delete.
4) Now try to delete that folder.
If it still says
double-check the folder does not contain any more (hidden) files. Two matches (which would be "." and "..") are okay, three indicate that the folder is indeed not empty.

I'm so confused

This has got to be the oddest thing I've ever seen. Even after clearing the cache and restarting the program, it still sits there. It's been there for a few days. Thanks for all your help. Not sure what else I could possibly do.
Enter the raw ftp command: dele .htaccess in the file/folder you are having difficulty deleting.

In my case it was jomsocial_rule.xml file that I couldn't not only delete, but to change permissions or download it.
Finally I did it.
I unzipped the original insller folders and found jomsocial_rule.xm - notice - there is no end letter "l" in it.
I renamed it correctly.
I went back to server folder and renamed the same file there to something else. Surprisingly - I could do it!
Then I was able to delete it and to replace with a new file.
Now my Akeeba Backup program is not complaining any more!
Nothing above helped me.
